    you should be okay. in ontario it's regulated by the professional boards. check out the nurses association, social workers etc. for your jurisdiction. it will be on their website. they take into account your history to determine if you are of good character (they have some way of phrasing it, i can't remember exactly). i looked into this because i was interested in nursing. but since i have a criminal record i wouldn't pass the "good character" screening. which really sucks.
